About this Event

What is a gap year? The who, what, when, where, and why of taking gap time in the COVID age. Meet with gap year expert Julia Rogers of Enroute Consulting, a college admissions advisor, and gap year alumni to learn how the gap year field has adapted to changing times, how to defer college acceptance to take gap time, and how gap time can benefit students.

Series Notes:

Come join us virtually for the annual USA Gap Year Fairs series!

From Nov 30, 2020 - March 31, 2021,  we'll be hosting about 40 virtual events to connect students, families, and counselors with the most up to date information about gap year options and summer opportunities in 2021.

While in-person events aren't possible, we're thrilled to continue collaborating with US high school counselors as well as gap year program providers, gap year counselors, alumni, and guest panelists to bring you a series of interactive and informative events this winter. As our 14th year of offering free educational events, we're excited to make this information even more accessible this year by embracing a virtual format.

To find out which gap year programs will be participating in the events, pre-register for updates by signing up here and we'll be sure to send you detailed information on our events this winter.

Virtual events will include a variety of topics like:

  • Gap year basics
  • Planning a gap year for 2021
  • Health, safety & risk management
